Canadian architects propose to build wooden skyscraper. You can not help but wonder why not use wood to build skyscrapers when it is used for residential buildings. Well the reason is because wood is not as strong as steel, burns easily, and is not sustainable. Not to mention, termites and beetles would have a party. But this has not seemed to stop architects from Vancouver, Canada, plans to build a gigantic skyscraper of 30 floors of wood. The company is not easy, but we are very happy to see the result.
Although the wood is green when harvested from sustainable sources, which is far from modern housing and commercial requirements. For a skyscraper to be built and withstand both time and weather, should be strong enough to support its own weight. After a few floors, wood simply can not cope with that difference of concrete that can withstand the weight of many levels.
However, the use of large pieces of plywood can be a solution to these problems.The plywood, also known as wallboard, is a type of timber is several layers of wood glued with moisture-resistant adhesives size that makes it sustainable. The result is that the cut-resistant and light beams can be used as vertical or horizontal columns. Glulam is also the only timber constructed or designed that can be produced in curved shapes that offers the flexibility of design engineers and designers unlimited.
Wood was actually much stronger tensile strength compared to steel, twice as a force for better weight and compressive strength than concrete.
Wooden Skyscraper envisioned for Vancouver
Canadian architects can only set a precedent for the construction of skyscrapers in the wood. Coming from areas sustainable, eco much friendlier than concrete, which gives about 9 kg of carbon dioxide per 10 kg of cement used.
